    Very nice. I had seen pictures of this orchid over the years and thought that it was nice but not anything really special. But then one of our orchid society members brought one into a meeting. It was spectacular and it got a lot of attention from all the members. I realized it was one of those orchids that is much more impressive in person than in pictures. Thanks for sharing. It's a really nice orchid to own.

    Thank you for correcting my error, Eric. I really do appreciate it.....I certainly want the tag to reflect correctly.

    I can't take credit for "patience". I do not have as much as I should, but in the case I had no choice but to wait. lol

    Yes, I know exactly what you mean. I do have a feeling of accomplishment since I hopefully supplied the condtions and care that it was happy with since it was a baby.

    I bought it at a big box store quite small. I have waited and waited to see the blooms until I had almost given up. It's always been a healthy little thing, but I was starting to wonder if it was a non-bloomer that I would have to add to all my other non-blooming orchids. :>)
    Thanks for your reply,

    Yes, isn't she a pretty little thing, Bruce? Did you notice that Eric was kind enough to let me know the correct name (Cheetah rather than Cheftah) so I was grateful to him for calling me attention to that so I can correct the tag.
    You know that I don't have as many bloomers as several members, so it makes me extra-happy when one rewards me.
    Thanks for your reply,
    Vicki
